Short-Term, School-to-School Exchanges
CHRHS offers students and staff opportunities to participate in school-to-school, short-term (approximately 2 weeks) exchange programs in a number of countries. These exchanges are based on the concept of "reciprocal visits," in which a group of CHRHS students and teachers travel to a school community in another country or region, stay with host families, attend school with their host "siblings" on school days, and spend evenings and weekends participating in the family life of their hosts. Then, we reciprocate this experience for our partners when they come to visit our school and community for a similar period of time. In each case, the host school organizes several "field trips" in which all participants explore a local area of interest or significance.
Knowing that an extended exchange or study abroad program is not right for every student, CHRHS offers students and staff opportunities to participate in short-term cultural visits. For the most part, these school sanctioned trips are organized by individual teachers who want to take students to different parts of the United States or to locations throughout the world.
For students who wish to have truly significant and extended international experiences, CHRHS is developing a variety of study abroad options. These options allow students to spend a semester or even a full school year studying in another country.
